    Haha, funniest #metoo ever.

    Still not what I said, but thanks for the giggle.

    *EDIT*
    If English isn't your first language, I apologise. I sometimes forget this is a global forum.

    My God lol, he was just saying in a funny way that he thinks most people here are rich. It was a joke. Nowhere does he say that he thinks that people don't care about specs or performance. Please let it go so we can continue the discussion about the Blade Pro's GPU.

    ON: anyone here who already owns the Blade Pro with 2080 MQ?

    After using it for a while in summary I like it in terms of portability its ok, screen is nice, added m.2 slot is great for my steam collection and gpu runs fine and with good/reasonable temps.

    Things I don’t like that much:
    - Fans are loud in performance mode even when using a stand for better cooling and in an aircon room environment
    - cpu temps are too high for my liking with spikes to 87-90c when playing AC Odyssey and other games, it happens when the cpu boost to around 3.9 to 4Ghz. Like I said I likely will try to cap the boost multiplier to stay below 80C. Compared to the blade 15 with same cpu/gpu the casing surface near the exhaust vents doesn’t get that hot but cpu temps are still high

    I may try a repaste too in the future...

    Repasting would give the best results.

    My GS75 dropped 16°C (92°C -> 76°C) in stress tests and 20°C (90°C -> 70°C) in gaming workloads after repasting with liquid metal.

    Remember that by lowering the temps, you will also be lowering the fan noise as they won't have to spin as fast.

    But before that have you tried undervolting the cpu using throttlestop?

    This is still with razor factory undervolt of -100mv...

    I believe if I undervolt more the cpu may just boost higher to maximise to the power limit and then temps may still be high? ...hence I wanna limit the boost multiplier too

    I have not used throttestop but will try, there are many sharing here on how to use :)

    I don’t intend to repaste with liquid metal, i have done that for my previous AW17 R4 and yes it really helps for the cpu especially...but that laptop was not carried around that much so I have in mind to try std stuff like phobya or kryonaut

    Oh, I didn't know it was undervolted from the factory. Try pushing it a bit lower maybe. And the purpose of undervolting is to drop the TDP draw at a specific clock speed, so you either get a performance boost if you're tdp limited, or a temperature drop if the cpu is already at max boost clock which seems to be your case
    By the way, you can easily lower the max turbo clock too in throttlestop. Just go into FIVR and it will be on the bottom left.

    And yes, you can use kryonaut too. It won't be as low but i expect it should drop to the low 80s or high 70s.

    I think if the gpu runs full at its 100watts the system simply hits the limits of the cooling capacity for the cpu...sooo need to tune and find the right balance for the cpu as I mentioned before the 45watts tdp is...”nonsense” once cpu boost above base clocks its hungry for more... :)

    Yup, an i7 8750h drew up to 80w at max all core boost.

    That said, I've unlocked the cpu power limit in my GS75 and even with unrealistically high loads like stress testing with prime95+Heaven 4.0 it's not thermal throttling. When gaming it hits about 78 max and that's it.

    So a good enough cooling solution should handle things fine.

    I edited my top post by the way.
